The Cybersecurity Tech Accord is grateful for this opportunity to provide feedback and input regarding the recommendations produced by ICANN’s Expedited Policy Development Process on the Temporary Specification for gTLD Registration Data (EPDP). Since 2018, our signatories, representing technology firms from across the globe, have noted with concern the dangers posed by what is now a years-long interruption in the regular access to registration data that has historically been a cornerstone in promoting security and accountability online. In addition to our input on Priority 2 recommendations #19-22, we also provided more general comments on the process itself, especially in the context of the evolving policy environment.
While we regret that finding meaningful solutions has remained elusive, we nevertheless appreciate the opportunity to provide input and stand ready to answer any questions and provide further support and guidance as necessary.
